Valentine's day gift guide: UNDER £50

Shrove Tuesday, Chinese New Year, and Valentine's Day - the second full week of February has a lot to answer for this year.

I'm willing to bet that pretty much every one of you reading this post will be a lover of pancakes, be that the blogger's-favourite American-style pancake, or the classic crepe-style pancake, and most of you will be mildly intrigued by the Chinese New Year, but I can't call it for Valentine's Day, being one of those tricky public holidays which is guaranteed to divide opinion year on year.

Whether you love it or hate it, whether you go all out or you'd rather go to bed early and pretend it isn't happening, there's no denying that Valentine's Day is on the way. Ahead of the hundreds of emails we're all about to receive, and the too-good-to-miss offers about to start popping up all over the internet, I thought I'd compile a little round up of some of my favourite gift options, in case you're getting ready to start dropping hints already...

If nothing else, take it as an excuse to treat yourself to something special, just because (1) January is finally over, and (2) you bloody well deserve it! I'm mostly excited about the opportunity to cook/go out for something really nice to eat, but I'm sure that will come as no surprise to most of you reading this...

(P.S. I forgot to put it in the body of the post, but the Nuxe Dry Oil Prodigieuse is always a winner!)
